Yaya Toure: Manchester will always be blue

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has rubbed salt into the wounds of Manchester United fans after posting on Twitter: “Manchester is and will always be blue…”.

The Ivory Coast international, who scored Manchester City’s last goal in the 3-0 win over their local rivals at Old Trafford, tweeted the message to his 321,000 followers an hour after the full-time whistle on Tuesday night.

Toure’s tweet, which has been retweeted over 12,000 times and favourited by more than 6,000 users, attracted plenty of angry comments from Manchester United supporters. However, the delighted Manchester City faithful clearly appreciated it, as did many neutrals.

The three-time African Footballer of the Year has been in fine form this season, and took his tally to 17 Premier League goals for the campaign - and 21 in all competitions - with last night’s late goal at Old Trafford. The 30-year-old produced another dominant performance at the home of Manchester City’s fiercest rivals and will surely be a contender for the PFA Player of the Year award at the end of the season.

How Manchester United must wish they currently had a midfielder of Toure’s class. United boss David Moyes deployed a three-man midfield comprised of Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley and Marouane Fellaini against the Premier League title contenders, but the trio endured a frustrating evening.

Reports suggest that Manchester United have wrapped up a £37m deal for Sporting Lisbon’s William Carvalho, who has been compared to Yaya Toure.

Until the Red Devils bring in some better players - it seems Manchester will continue to be blue, although Toure’s comment that the city “will always be blue” may be a little presumptuous.
